Manhattanville College – Learning for a Sustainable Future and Using Social Media for Social Change


This social pedagogy practice was developed for a First-Year Seminar entitled Sustainability: Creating a Future We Can Live With. It requires students to engage in two interrelated ePortfolio-based projects. In the first, entitled Learning for a Sustainable Future, students use ePortfolios as spaces for reflecting on, integrating and representing their learning about sustainability and for engaging seminar peers in a collaborative process of learning from each other. In the second, entitled Social Media for Social Change/Action, teams of first-year students work together to use ePortfolio as a social media platform through which they seek to convince peers outside of their seminar to reflect and take action on an issue that is affecting the Manhattanville community’s capacity for living sustainably and contributing to a sustainable future.
